Ralph Macchio shows off his mystery comedy skills

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: The New Year is holding a lot of promise for Ralph Macchio — some of that due to his hilarious “Wax On, @#!$ Off” video. He figures that between its home on Funny or Die, You Tube and other sites, it’s had more than two million views at this point. Along with the satisfaction of having a viral video that’s tickled the funny bones of computer users around the globe, “Wax On, @#!$” has “had an impact in the industry,” says the actor who’ll forever be remembered as the original Karate Kid.

He notes, “Funny Or Die is such an industry-savvy website, I knew if everything came into alignment, it would get passed around and give people a sample of my sense of humor. I have an irreverent sarcasm people don’t know about.” The video, directed by his friend, Todd Holland of “Malcolm in the Middle” and “Larry Sanders” fame, “generated a decent amount of activity for me. That was part of the plan.”

“Wax On, @#!$ Off,” in case you missed it, has Ralph’s family, manager, mailman and others holding an intervention for him because his clean-cut family man image is destroying his career — with Ralph subsequently attempting to get into TMZ-worthy shenanigans. Sitting out on the street, he looks despairingly at a poster for the new “Karate Kid” starring Jaden Smith.

Macchio plays it straight — make that straight-laced — on “Psych” tonight (12/8) as a by-the-book police academy instructor charged with whipping James Roday’s and Dule Hill’s characters into cops worthy of the uniform. It’s a nod to the “Police Academy” movies.

“Those guys are so much fun to work with, it’s like being in theater camp with a couple of cameras,” he says. “That show has got its own heartbeat. It has such a following — they call themselves ‘Psych’-Os. It’s been picked up for a sixth season. You know the odds of that in television today,” adds Ralph, who tips that there is more to his character than initially meets the eye. “But I don’t want to give it away.”
